Laundry Room Update

$800
3 Weeks
Medium

My before pictures were wiped out when I upgraded my phone, but we had a gloomy laundry room with brownish pink colored paint, baskets of flowers wallpaper boarder, old sheet linoleum floors, and mismatched cabinets. Now I have a bright room that I absolutely love. I'm still working on the right accessories, but in 3 weeks of work, we created a great new updated laundry room.
Bright updated laundry room that took us about 3 weeks, some upcycling and creativity, not a lot of money, and all DIY.  We are so pleased with the result.

I wallpapered the upper parts of the shelf to hide the holes,  We trimmed with crown and a bit of wood to give it a more built in look.

Vintage curtains from my Mom turned on the side and clipped up.  The cabinet had been in our kitchen for years.  I just painted it.  The ironingboard cabinet on the left was given wallpaper and paint to match too,

    You did a fabulous job. I have plain plank cabinet doors that I must redo. Yours look great and you have inspired me to try my hand at it.
